CORPUS CHRISTI - Testimony continued this morning in the capital murder trial of former Alice Police officer Jose Gonzales III.
Gonzales is accused of murdering Leslie Morin, 31, in December of last year.
The victim's 14-year-old daughter took the stand this morning giving graphic testimony about the day her mother died.
Amber Gamez was calm and collected when she talked about what happened.
"I yelled at him ‘I hate you' and he told me to shut up," said Gamez.
Gamez also described being sent back into the home to retrieve evidence for police saying "I had to walk over my mother's covered body."
This morning Morin's father and a ballistics expert also testified. The ballistics expert answered questions about the defendant's police uniform and the blood that was splattered on it.
Tuesday the victim's mother, Dianna Rodriguez, took the stand to testifying about the horrifying incident that her daughter.
"He pushes her and I just hear my daughter say, no Joey and I just see his hand and I see the gun, where he's shooting her," Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez explained to the jury that Leslie had been staying at her parent's home in Annaville because she and Gonzales were having relationship problems.
"I can just see like flashes and that's all I can see and I did hear him say you cheated," Rodriguez said.
Prosecutors say Leslie Morin suffered five gun shot wounds including one to her heart.
After the shooting, Gonzales was involved in a standoff with police at his Alice home, but eventually released his son and surrendered.
If found guilty he could get up to life in prison.
